Campaign Signs

City of Victoria 

The city’s Zoning Code, Section 21-18A regulates political campaign signs, however, they are not enforced during even numbered years as noted on the Secretary of State website

Political campaign signs not exceeding eight square feet do not require a permit. The sign must contain the name and address of the person responsible for such a sign, and that person shall be responsible for its removal. Such signs shall remain for no longer than 75 days in any calendar year. The city shall have the right to remove and destroy signs not conforming to this article.

Unauthorized Sign on Public Property or Public Right of Way

Any sign installed or placed on public property or on public right-of-way shall be forfeited to the public. See the Minnesota Department of Transportation for information about signs along highway right of way.

Campaign signs are not permitted on public property and public right-of-ways.  When city staff receive a complaint, they will investigate and remove the sign if it is improperly located.  The sign will be stored for a short period of time so it can be claimed by owners.  If unclaimed, the city will dispose of it.
